Adding to the long list of divorces that have come out of Bravo’s Real Housewives shows are Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer and her husband Mario. Mario had been accused of cheating for years on the show, but now has admitted to a relationship with a relationship with 27-year old Kasey Dexter for roughly the past year. Coincidentally, Ramona and Mario have been married for 27 years. Creepy! Ramona has also reportedly been out on the town with a much younger man lately. Ramona stated on her Facebook page this morning: “Thank you all for the love & support! For my daughter’s sake, I would appreciate everyone respecting our privacy during this difficult time.” Just days ago police were called to their Hampton home after Ramona walked in the house to find Mario there with Dexter. Mario had been reportedly staying there since the two had separated. Ramona initially told police that Mario had choked her, but charges were never filed. Ramona and Mario have separated but at this point neither have filed for divorce.
Ramona is just one of MANY ‘housewives’ to separate/divorce from their husbands after appearing on the show. Maybe these relationships were doomed before the show, but the spotlight couldn’t have helped the situation any. Here is the list of divorcees since appearing on Real Housewives (Huffington Post):
